Visited with friends and family on 9th December Very good selection of stalls but very little time or space to stop and browse as you get carried round by the crowd. Not really a pleasant or relaxed experience. Too many stalls and bars crammed into...More

Random garden sheds sporadically obstructing the city streets selling over priced tat and even more over priced food and drink.

Disappointed this year with the market. Less diversity with the stalls and very poor directions from one area to another.
